Hello. I'm 21-year-old and I'm worried about my kidneys. I wasn't experiencing any physical symptoms at all. But recently, I had a physical exam for my entry into med school and my urinalysis revealed hematuria. The doctor at the university opted me for a repeat urinalysis and same results were revealed. My BUN and creatinine were normal. But ultrasound of my kidneys revealed "parenchymal echogenecity of both kidneys is slightly increased. The renal pyramids are prominent. There is no evidence of lithiasis nor hydronephrosis." The overall impression reads "Normal-sized kidneys with diffuse parenchymal changes". Oh no, when I read the word "diffuse" I'm worried that it's really bad. But still I'm not experiencing any symptom as of the moment...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
